number one. which is immigration. number two is obama care. number three, mystery scandal. so, let's talk about immigration, first. though i'm dying to get to that scandal. >> good morning. it's so great to see that view behind you. i used to have a view down the mall at my old job working for the senate majority leader and when i worked for bill frist and george bush was president, they tried to get immigration reform done. unfortunately that didn't happen. with a lot of democratic pushback, they didn't want to tackle that issue. i agree with maria that immigration is going to be very central on the president's agenda the next four years as well as the republican agenda, both because it's the right thing to do, it is a pressing issue and also because of the electoral pressure that both parties have to tackle this directly. number two, obamacare. we are only now seeing sort of the fallout and consequences of that legislation. there are lawsuits all around -- dozens of lawsuits, actually, against the administration on obamacare when it comes to religious liberty. we're seeing health care p
